After wrapping up a productive year as an Artist Fellow at the de Young Museum of San Francisco, I had a solo show at Gallery Wendi Norris in San Francisco in fall of 2013 - a partial catalog can be seen online at Flight of the Dodo.

I'm looking forward to several shows in 2014, including The Singing and the Silence at The Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington DC.

The Skull Show at The Bedford Gallery at the Lesher Center for the Arts will feature some of my hominid skulls June 12th through August 31st.

Re: Collection is a selction of works at the Museum of Art and Design in New York by retiring chief curator David McFadden and will feature some of my work.

Against the Grain: This show, organized by Museum of Art and Design, New York, is currently at The Museum of Art in Fort Lauderdale. It has a beautiful hardcover catalog (with a cover photo of one of my pieces) available at many local bookstores or Amazon.

Bio

I am interested in the biological ramifications of humankind’s drive to modify ourselves and our environment. Before I started my career as an artist, I was a park ranger and worked in natural resource conservation. I feel very lucky to have work included in many prominent collections, including Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington DC, the Museum of Art and Design in New York, Project Space 176 in London, The Progressive Collection, 21C Museum in Louisville, KY, and the Ripley’s Museum of Hollywood, CA. My partner, husband, and frequent collaborator Andy Hope and I were awarded the Artist Fellowship at the de Young Museum of San Francisco in 2012, and spent an great year working with the museum and their public.
